Just One Day - Spring Kindle Edition
'Hilariously relatable. An absolute must-read.' Anita Faulkner.
Mum-of-three Louisa thought she only had her never-ending to-do list to worry about, but the arrival of a ghost from the recent past puts her in an untenable position. Can she navigate the difficult situation she’s in without their friendship becoming common knowledge or will it cause long-term damage to her marriage?
When a family member begins to suspect there’s more to her relationship with the new sous-chef than meets the eye, Louisa needs to think on her feet or she’ll dig herself into a deeper hole. But the cost of keeping her secret, not only from her husband, comes at a high price, one which tugs at her conscience.
With everyday niggles already causing a further rift between Louisa and husband Ronnie, will she manage to keep her family on track whilst her life spirals out of control? And when tragedy strikes, will Ronnie step up when she needs him most?For fans of Fiona Gibson, Miranda Dickinson and Jill Mansell.

It took me no time at all to get into ‘Just One Day-Spring’. In fact I was drawn into the story from the very first word on the very first page. The book seemed to develop a hold over me and it was a hold that I wasn’t willing to break. I had initially picked the book up only intending to read a couple of chapters to say that I had made a start but I ended up becoming that wrapped up in the story and in the lives of the characters, that I was still sat there reading over half a dozen chapters and an hour later. I found it almost impossible to put the book down. The more of the story I read, the more I wanted to read and the quicker the pages seemed to turn. At one point the pages were turning that quickly that it was almost as if they were turning themselves. All too quickly I reached the end of ‘Just One Day- Spring’ and I had to say goodbye to the characters. I found ‘Just One Day-Spring’ to be a lovely read, which held my attention throughout and kept me guessing.
‘Just One Day- Spring’ is extremely well written. Susan has one of those easy going writing styles that is easy to get used to and easy to get along with. In fact reading ‘Just One Day-Spring’ felt more like a chat between friends rather than reading a book. I hope that makes sense. Susan clearly cares about her characters and this shines through in the very vivid and realistic way in which she describes them. She makes her characters seem just as real as you and I. I also found that I ended up feeling every emotion that the characters were feeling – I would go from smiling one minute at a part of the story to welling up at another point. Susan tackles some difficult subjects but she tackles them with great sensitivity and compassion. There were several twists and turns to the story. I love the way in which Susan makes the reader feel as though they are part of the story and at the heart of the action. That’s how I felt at any rate.
In short, I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘Just One Day- Spring’ and I would definitely recommend this book to other readers. I will certainly be reading more of Susan’s work in the future. The score on the Ginger Book Geek board is a very well deserved 5* out of 5*.
I really enjoyed the storyline and the characters in the book. There were lots of unexpected twists which kept me on my toes. It was clear from the start of the book that Louisa is juggling a lot of plates and roles from wife, mother, sister, business woman etc. The first plate to fall is the family holiday accommodation which she was meant to organise until Caden inadvertently comes to the rescue. The to do lists at the start of each chapter were the perfect touch which captured how busy and in demand she truly is. You can clearly see why Lou is frustrated and distracted as she doesn’t feel appreciated. Her marriage is strained as her husband works away from home a lot leaving her to raise their three children single-handedly on a regular basis. At the same time she has to act completely normal when Caden is in close proximity. Louisa definitely has a better poker face than I would have if I was in her situation.
This is the second book in the Just One Day series and it can be read as a standalone.

I enjoyed Just One Day - Winter and was pleased to be invited to read the second book in this series.
Spring - has a more substantial plot than book one, which I prefered. It was interesting to catch up with Louisa, her family and friends.
There are many twists and turns, some cheerful, some miserable, and an engaging, suspenseful ending.
I would personally advise reading the books of this series for maximum enjoyment.
